I'll just point out that just because you are having an issue does not
imply that EVERYONE is having the issue.  Windows is a fickle beast, and
your Windows is not the same as your neighbor's Windows; things that
don't work for you may work for her, and vice versa.  I know for certain
that there are many many happy Windows users of GnuCash.

We have had very few reports of this issue, but I cannot believe that
nobody else is running Windows 7 and trying to print, which means to me
that it is probably working for some people.

What kind of printer do you have?  There HAVE been issues with, IIRC,
some HP Printers where the drivers are....  problematic.  But iirc these
issues were not limited to Win7.
